A Winter Getaway To West Virginia’s Snowiest Town Is Nothing Short Of Magical

What is West Virginia’s snowiest town, anyway? It’s actually not as easy to determine as you might think. Some say it’s Pickens, which received the record amount of snow in a single snowfall (57 inches in 1950). Some say it’s Terra Alta, which has in the past reportedly received an average of 175 inches per year. But as far as current measurements go for areas covered by the National Weather Service that are included under the Charleston, West Virginia area of responsibility, the answer in recent years is that Snowshoe is the town in West Virginia with the most snow: one estimate puts Snowshoe’s average at 180 inches per year.

To book a stay in Snowshoe, West Virginia, or explore some of the many winter day trip activity options, head to Snowshoe Mountain Resort’s website. Let it snow… as long as you’ve checked off all the items on your winter packing list, of course.
